Not that two weeks is saying much considering how many weeks there are in total. (It's 93 by the by.) I feel kinda lame cross-posting like I do, but this is the first thing I feel like I can be consistent about and I am just a little proud of myself for it.
Alright guys. So, last week I jokingly said I should draw all the Pokemon. Then I realized that was awesome, and I should actually do it.
It's definitely been done a million times before, (at least with the first 150) but that's okay. This is a fun exercise and an excuse to draw really flat, graphic characters. It's something that I don't get to do often, what with being an animator and all.
"This is not cardio kickboxing. If that's what you wanted, I would drop out now. This is actual kickboxing, it will get intense."
I took my first K.O. Boxing & Kickboxing class last night.
It was pretty awesome. Our instructor is a little asian man named John Kum (pronounced Koom) who is strict and serious business but not in an intimidating way. The beginner section of the class (versus the experienced kids who do their own thing on the other side of the room) is pretty much half my animation class. We basically did stretches, learned what a jab and a hook are and how to bounce around on our toes like Street Fighters in idle mode. The lesson is only an hour, but it got us going. Lots of repetition, which I really like. Basically, this class seems like it's going to be really fun and I'm super excited for the next 12 weeks.
I had to buy track pants for the class because I straight up don't own any. So I got some at Loblaws. They have stripes. Which means I go fast!
Coming up on the end of the semester, animation is underway and for the first time since high school, I'm not stressed to all hell about anything. In fact, I'm pretty much done everything that needs to be handed in except for my blue tonal.
So, in celebration (plus I just had to sift through all of it for my final) here are some life drawings!
We have to start pulling out drawings (other than our films, what is this) for our Fine Tooning book. Which means that I'll be sketching like a mad woman, only to have 85% of them be rejected by Tom. And Christmas drawings! Oh dear oh dear.
